Save At Seven Hilton Brands With New Amex Offers

For those of you not familiar with Amex Offers, it’s a program available through most Amex cards, where different cards are eligible for different savings and bonus offers. In many cases the offers can be huge, and more than offset the annual fee on a card.

To view Amex Offers, go to the bottom of the account summary page of any American Express card, where you’ll see all the offers you’re eligible for. These offers come in different forms, including discounts and even in some cases bonus points.

Over the years we’ve seen quite a few offers for Hilton stays, given the longstanding partnership between American Express and Hilton. Usually we see one or maybe two offers introduced at the same time, but Amex and Hilton have just rolled out five new Amex Offers covering seven Hilton brands.

First of all, keep in mind that these offers are targeted, so different accounts will be targeted for different offers.

However, in total it seems like the following offers are available:

  • Hilton Garden Inn — spend $175, get $30 back (expires June 30, 2019)
  • DoubleTree by Hilton — spend $225, get $45 back (expires May 31, 2019)
  • Hilton — spend $250, get $50 back (expires May 30, 2019)
  • Homewood Suites & Home2 Suites by Hilton — spend $250, get $50 back (expires May 31, 2019)
  • Waldorf Astoria & Conrad — spend $500, get $100 back (expires June 30, 2019)

Note the general restrictions associated with these offers (you’ll want to consult each individual T&Cs for full details):

  • This is only valid for stays at US properties
  • You have to book directly with Hilton (through their website, app, or by phone) to qualify for the offer
  • You need to be charged during the promotion period to qualify
  • This is based on cumulative spend at a particular brand over the promotion period, so you can qualify for the cash back based on multiple stays
  • Registration is required, and is limited, so you’ll want to register as soon as possible

As you can see, these promotions represent discounts of 17-20% in certain increments. This is of course combinable with the points you’d usually earn for credit card spend at Hilton hotels, and is also combinable with the points you usually earn through Hilton Honors.

Hilton’s current global promotion runs through May 4, 2019, and offers 2,000 bonus points per stay, plus 10,000 bonus points every five stays or 10 nights, whichever comes first.

Were you targeted for any of these Hilton offers, and if so, do you plan on taking advantage of them?

  1. Kind of annoying that all of my Hilton offers are on my Amex Plat and not my Hilton Amex…

  2. Looks like Hilton branded Amex cards are blocked from most of those offers. (except for Conrad and the Hawaii deal) I tried both the no AF Hilton and Ascend, I suspect Aspire might also be blocked. (Correct me if I am wrong.) I do not have an Aspire card to verify.

  3. Can you double dip on the Aspire ? I’m staying at the Biltmore this weekend, will get a $250 credit from the Aspire resort credit and now $100 if I spend $500? Total if $350 off $500? Guess I’ll be getting room service! (It’s an award stay)

  4. Got targeted by all of the offers on my Amex Plat, unfortunately only got the Waldorf/Conrad deal on my Aspire card

  5. “Why do they limit these offers to stays in the U.S. only?”

    Not sure why, but it might be to limit how many points they award. The “U.S. only” restriction, which also applies to dining, is the major of weakness of AMEX cards compared to Chase cards.

    “Kind of annoying that all of my Hilton offers are on my Amex Plat and not my Hilton Amex…”

    Clearly, offers do not apply to Hilton Honors co-branded cards because they already earn significant points for Hilton stays (14x for the Aspire; 12x for the Ascend).

  6. I got the offer on my Business Platinum. I recently made a bunch of reservations at Hilton properties so this was great timing for me.

    Lucky, thanks for posting these. I rarely remember to check the offers in my Amex account.

  7. @DCS

    I got the Waldorf and Conrad offer on my Aspire card so I can say at least that one is available on the cobranded cards. Unfortunately the US properties only restriction makes it useless for any planned stays I have.

  8. @Jason — It is complicated… It seems that the co-branded cards might be included in a targeted offer when the minimum spend is relatively high (at least $500).

    I was targeted for two such offers on all my 3 co-branded HH AMEX cards, (No-Fee [NF], Ascend, Aspire):

    1. Hilton Hawaii — spend $1,000, $200 back | NF, Ascend, Aspire
    2. Conrad, WA — spend $500, get $100 back | NF, Ascend, Aspire

    By contrast I got targeted for more offers on my AMEX Biz Plat than @Lucky put up there:

    1. Hilton Mexico — spend $500, $100 back.
    2. Hilton Hawaii — spend $1,000, $200 back
    3. Conrad, WA — spend $500, get $100 back
    4. DoubleTree — spend $225, $45 back
    5. HLT Garden Inn — spend $175, $30 back
    6. Homewood/Home2 — spend $250, $50 back
    7. Hilton — spend $250, $50 back

    Also, as “permanent” benefit (written in the T&C) of the Aspire, there is an offer where you get up to $100 back at WA and Conrad on stay of 2 nights or more but one must book at HiltonHonors-dot-com-slash-aspirecard or by calling Hilton Honors and providing yhe reference code ‘ZZAAP1’. Rates under this benefit tend to be a bit higher than booking directly at hilton-dot-com, however.

  9. Grrrrr…I’m staying at the Conrad London next week. I hate how most of these are limited to the U.S. now. I got lucky once with that random Hilton offer only in Mexico one year when I happened to stay at a Hilton in Mexico but I miss the days when these would include all Hiltons or Marriotts and not limit the offers to the USA. Usually still best for me to stick to the Chase Reserve with hotel stays.

  10. I received the Waldorf offer but I don’t see anywhere in the T’s&C’s that it’s limited to US properties. . .

  11. NM, I’m seeing it now :/ when you click on the participating properties link it shows all Waldorf properties globally 🙁 ugh.
